Raw Danger!, known in Japan as Zettai Zetsumei Toshi 2: Itetsuita Kiokutachi (絶体絶命都市2 -凍てついた記憶たち-, The Desperate City 2: Frozen Memories) is an action adventure survival game for the PlayStation 2. It was released on March 30, 2006 in Japan by Irem, and later internationally in 2007 by Agetec. The game follows six characters as they try to escape a city that is being flooded by torrential rains.

The game is a sequel to Disaster Report. Like the previous game in the series, Raw Danger was slightly modified for the Western release and to make it more suitable for the US market. A further sequel, Zettai Zetsumei Toshi 3: Kowareyuku Machi to Kanojo no Uta, was released in Japan and South Korea for the PSP on April 23, 2009.[citation needed].

Gameplay[edit]

Players must think on their feet and utilize creative survival skills to have any hope of seeing their family again. Body temperature and health decrease when players are wet or in cold weather too long. They must find places to warm themselves and gather food, and find dry clothes or make them. In the end, players must run, climb, jump, and crawl their way out of this devastated city, while constantly trying to piece together information from emergency broadcasts and other victims of the disaster.[1]

The choices that the players make within the game affects the main storyline and dialog, and ultimately the ending of the game.

Plot[edit]

It is December, 2010. The underground city, Geo City (Tomisakashi in Japan), located beneath the thriving city of Del Ray, is a project put together to design the safest and most advanced city ever built in the world. The newly opened city is working great and the Mayor's Conference to commemorate the opening is going well, aside from several days of highest-recorded rainfall and a precautionary warning to evacuate after the Hudson River's water levels rise beyond cautionary levels.

Joshua Harwell

Joshua Harwell and Stephanie are just two of the waiters helping to make Mayor Goldstein's conference go as smoothly as possible. But, when the nearby levee breaks and the Hudson River begins to flood the city from above, the building the conference is being held in begins to be destroyed by the raging rapids. The city and everyone in it are in total panic and turmoil. Joshua and Stephanie see one of the secondary protagonist on the news, Amber Brazil, the framed murderer and innocent character. Detective Richard is looking for her soon afterwards. Joshua and Stephanie are walking around from Geo City to Del Ray, and throughout the areas of Del Ray, to escape with a helicopter. Joshua helps Ivan, the fifth protagonist, about his friend Sierra Young; meanwhile, Stephanie tells Joshua about her stepmother.

A few years ago, Stephanie had met her new stepmother Claire Wyatt. Stephanie rejects her after having her late mother's dress go missing, as her stepmother put it in the box for donation without realizing it. Stephanie fled in anger, but when she was about to be struck by a car, Claire had pushed her out of the way and was hit instead, resulting in serious injury and being bedridden. In the present day, Stephanie feels guilty about her stepmother and her last goal is to apologize for the accident. They go to the frozen suburbia trying to locate Claire, and it appears that she was moved to the circus with the survivors. Joshua and Stephanie reach out to the Claire and they are able to meet her in the RV, though a doctor informs them that Claire does not have much time left. Stephanie apologizes to her stepmother, and Claire says "It's okay Stephanie." and passes away, leaving Stephanie crying. Meanwhile, the helicopter arrives and the circus collapses due to the area flooding. Joshua and Stephanie make it out alive and meet Stephanie's father, who is in the helicopter. Stephanie tells her dad that Claire is dead, and they hug while Joshua looks on. They all escape successfully.
